Drill out rivets, there are two more torx screws behind the seal, remove cover, swing away the rod latches, remove the inside handle/lock and two rods together out of that hole, remove the striker assembly and you'll see the backside of the outer handle, remove rod.
To remove handle, gently lift the lock tab at the bottom of each wedge (on the sides) with a small screwdriver, gently tap the wedge upward and the handle will come free. IN some cases, the glass may get in the way and might have to be removed. Dont pry against it or hit it for obvious reasons.
